Talismans hang from the clotheslineAlongside canary yellow suits for coal mines
2. Barnum’s Animal
Touched my table with moldy chowAnd tried to show me how to cookHmm, look here, chode faceYou can’t fathom how my poached eggs and toast taste
Foolish clowns in a feud, they could lead to a slaughterYou can drown in a few centimeters of waterDid a thousand interviews that didn’t lead to an offerSo I feed from you coffins and peed in your coffersSneezing and coughing, snot sprayingA hard cot that’s got your name, my brother, I’m not playingYou can rot brain, just spot trainsCold storms and hot rains, quatrains clot veins
3. So Below featuring Alaska co-produced by Steel Tipped Dove
Bomboclaats in the redI’m under docks, fit to dredgeRum on rocks with the wedgeHummin’ BachSummer’s lost in my headGums are flossed, slumber soft in my bed
Yo, I’m more Mephistopheles than SocratesOr maybe Metalocalypse meets the Aqua TeenLife is awkward, no off switch and thought policeIf not I’m on it, first I need coffee ‘fore you talk to me
When everything’s performative then everything is fraudulentEvery president sucks, not just the forty fifthAs well as forty sixth, forty seventh, forty eightDon’t trust institutions, goin’ through my Rick & Morty phase
4. Fibonacci Sequins co-produced by Steel Tipped Dove & Johann Sebastian
Shoddy reasons for the seasonMy tank leaks liters as I’m leaving ElysiumEven league leaders need leisure in the eveningsSeething is believing, breathing is believingThe season is for steaming weed with the shishaAllegiance is lesion, all the legions get the cleaver
Is it a myth or a load of shit, I can’t tellEither way the story made the flame in the lamp swellCanteen filled with kerosene & gunpowder buried behind the Benz shellWelcome to Camp HellI found a crystal in a lake where the clams dwellAnd I was awarded with a “fine job!” and “damn swell!”You can follow me on instagram, wellEven if you can’t spell you can just follow the plant smell
The hook from Torito is pretty nice, and the second verse from Zilla Rocca was dope too.
Don’t cry, dry your eyes
We all look up to some violent guys
I see the Punisher skull on blue lives
“Nonviolent” force? That shit is true lies
Torito actually had my favorite verse though. This dude is actually a fucking beast. I really liked his performance on ialive‘s latest record, and he was great on Darko the Super‘s recent album with Steel Tipped Dove, but he still ended up surpassing my expectations here.
Plastic covered couches, countertops are laminate
No matter how you lather it you can’t clench the contaminates
Survey where the salmon swim, Sherlock with the saddle bit
My alpha numerology submerges all your battleships
Count me as the catalyst diverging all your cattle chips
Neighbors hear the snake rattle in the gravel pit
You blame your pawn game on your paddle grip
Doesn’t sound the same to everybody when the gavel hits
He fucking bodied this shit. I was already enjoying the song a lot, but his verse really pushed this shit to the next level. The production here is really nice too. I love this track. I think it’s dope as hell, and definitely one of my favorites of the week. Do not sleep on this one. I’m gonna be all over that Meat Circus album. I can’t wait to hear more.
6. Bovines & Beans co-produced by Johann SebastianThis track definitely has one of my favorite beats on the album. It’s more downtempo than the preceding instrumental, and relatively melodic. This is the shortest track on the album, but I still really love it. Torito of course murdered this shit.
Scrollin’ through for a song to cry to
Parched eyes still turn dark skies sky blue
Large fries, naked on a raw hide rug
Watchin’ cooking shows, fuck the CDC, scarfing cookie dough
As much as I like the production and rapping, the song’s straightforward structure does make it feel a little scant. It’s just one verse with no hook or anything. I definitely fuck with the song, but I think there could’ve been more added to spice things up a bit. This is still a very good song though.
7. Fat Controller featuring The Hell Hole Store co-produced by Johann SebastianI’d heard of The Hell Hole Store a few times in the past, but I didn’t realize until I listened to this album that it’s just the name that ialive & Darko the Super perform as a duo under. Anyway, this might actually be my favorite song on the album. I love the production here, and every single verse here is fire. The tone of the production just makes the collaboration between these artists feel even more exciting. They all sound perfect over this beat. ialive killed that first verse.
We’re all cuttin’ loose though
My NARCAN rhymes wake you up when it’s too dope
Beware of the beast
He don’t got limbs, but his stock price still creaks
Corporate interest doesn’t interest me
I find it greedy, and wholly disinteresting
What happened to the middle class?
It seems defeating and even too redundant to ask
Money makes the world go down the drainTighten the noose around my brainI’m suicidal, but I’m not insaneThey say I’m a communist, a democratic socialistI run the label, make the beats, and I’m the vocalist
Chop the stash, rockin’ Abraham LincolnWith the faded tan, thinkin’ with the plate of clams, drinkin’I knew the ships sinkin’, but I hear a playing bandAnd these selfies slay the ‘gram, know my data plan’s shrinkin’Shady man’s winking, caucasian corn rowsNo morsels, but the job pays in hormonesMortals, show gratitude, God made the warzonesKool-Aid on taps, all day the horn blows
Wall to wall while the wall-eyes pass the carp againYou’re looking sharp in your All Lives Matter cardiganMy unions sew fashion out of marmot skinUndue the flap and start shittin’ on the charlatans
8. Hobby Horse co-produced by Steel Tipped Dove
Span the ocean, decant the potionMy anthem’s notion is who gives a fuckThat the eyes have emotion if the hands are soulless?The eyes have the motion to remand the homeless
